August 1st, 2013:
Welcome Erik Diaz on bass and listen to our first recorded jams! We recently started playing at regular open mic nights at Front Street Pub in Massapequa Park, NY hosted every Wednesday by our friend Rob Sloan. We enjoyed jamming on improv and cover songs over the nights and figured if sitting is this much fun lets do it more!
There's a bunch of jams and rehearsals from our soundcloud page. Feel free to download and get them early because we regularly put up new songs and take down the earlier tunes. You can download the song from our new free song page, a collection of works in progress and jams. Most are in mp3s or cd-quality wav files. Save them to see how they progress into finished versions

July 2, '12 New Album Update:
The new album is coming along nicely, the sounds will be familiar and new. The mix of the thick guitars, driving drums, stretched bass strings, and intertwining melodies is in full swing. Now the sonics have been a bit expanded, there are new instruments never used on Aoeria songs before. Percussion like shakers and tambourines sprinkle the rhythms, organs swirl between the speakers, and acoustic guitars mesh with fuzz guitars in a tight weave. Can't wait to share the sounds with everyone.
We added Hi-def Praise to All You Hear and Waterwheel at Bandcamp!
(24bit and 48/96khz flacs & more, Cd/Dvd sets available with hi-def audio pictures and more)
Bandcamp, a great site that helps small bands like us put up cool stuff as direct as possible from us to you. Standard-definition CDs Wavs and Mp3s are 16 bit 44.1khz (like classic video games) but our Hi-Def Wav, Mp3, & Dvd are 24bit 96khz (Waterwheel is 24/48), like most Blu-Rays. Download Shuttle or Wonder for free to see how you like it.
The hi-def files are available in many formats; we recommend Flacs to make uncompressed Wav files which are right off the master reel (yep, we use tape), read bandcamp's instructions. They also offer higher quality mp3s, but check compatibility for portable use, you may want our standard-def version with CD format wavs and ipod friendly mp3s. Happy listening! -Frank
Praise to All You Hear (24bit 96khz flacs & more, Cd/Dvd sets available with hi-def audio & artwork during songs)
Waterwheel (24bit 48khz flacs & more, Cd/Dvd sets available with hi-def audio pictures, artwork during songs & bonus)

The Reel Story of Aoeria and Waterwheel

Here's a poem I made recently aoeria.blogspot.com/2012/03/sunday-morningsunday-morning-collecting.html
Info about our albums and the band
Aoeria (A-or-ee-uh) is an independent rock band from the Long Island/New York City area that creates songs over a wide range of sounds a styles, from acoustic strums to groovy riffs. Our newest member is Erik Diaz on bass, or thunderfingers as we like to call him, Toby Bruzik drums and rocks (Toby is a rock artist is the literal sense of the word), and Frank Giliberti sings, plays guitar, writes songs, and is the honorary driver/roadie. A new album is in the works while Aoeria's 2nd album, Praise to All You Hear is now making waves. The first album Waterwheel has gathered fans worldwide on internet radio, video sites, and social networking with original sounds and bandmade videos with Frank's photography. Each member has been playing in local groups for more than 13 years and have joined up to put their collective experience together. Although it is difficult to pinpoint a specific sound of Aoeria, we can tell you the the sound is a unique style with subtle and intense guitar sounds, introspective and observational lyrics with intricate and simple melodies, all meshed with rhythmic dances and meditations. The band is completely independent: from the music, recording, and pictures, to pressing and designing CDs and DVDs and making websites and videos. Straight from the band to you. Thanks for tuning in!.
